The United States' Defend Forward Cyber Strategy: A Comprehensive Legal Assessment

by Jack Goldsmithvia Oxford University Press
Thursday, May 19, 2022

The United States’ new Defend Forward Strategy constitutes a major change in how the nation with the world’s most powerful cyber arsenal views when and how this arsenal should be deployed. It is a large step in the direction of more aggressive action in cyberspace—albeit for defensive ends. The United States has not attempted to hide this new and more aggressive cyber posture. To the contrary, it has telegraphed the change, probably in order to enhance deterrence. But the telegraphing has taken place at a highly abstract level. Very little is known about precisely what types of operations Defend Forward entails. And while the US government has asserted that Defend Forward is consistent with domestic and international law, it has not explained how the new strategy overcomes the perceived legal constraints that previously tempered US responses to cyber intrusions and threats. This volume aims to fill these gaps, and to bring Defend Forward out of the shadows, so to speak, both factually and legally.

Tuesday, May 17, 2022

For over six decades, the US-Japan Alliance has played a key role in maintaining stability in East Asia. Now, with the rise of China, the North Korean nuclear threat, instability in Europe, and competition in the high-tech sector, the alliance will play an increasingly important role. Washington and Tokyo can collaborate on next-generation technology, encourage democratic systems, and play an even larger, if more challenging, security role.

Monday, May 16, 2022

With global energy markets roiled by the Russians invading Ukraine and turning off gas supplies to Poland and Bulgaria, and now electricity to Finland, it’s time for every nation to rethink its dependence on foreign energy and its domestic production.
